Ocean View Nursing Home is situated in a breath-taking location on the outskirts of Camp Village, along the Dingle Peninsula and the Wild Atlantic Way. You can feast on views of the endless sky and of the ocean, with its ever-changing colours.
Life in our nursing home is full of rich experiences and laugher, and we’ve created a strong community for our residents. This community spirit has attracted the attention of the local media – recently Radio Kerry did a one-hour broadcast from Ocean View.
At Ocean View, we been delivering excellent care to our residents for nearly 30 years. We pride ourselves on giving individual care to each of our 35 residents. There’s an old Irish saying, “Níl aon tinteáin mar do thinteáin féin”, which translates as: There is no fireplace like your own fireplace. We want you to treat our nursing home as your own home, your own hearth. Home is about more than bricks and mortar. It’s a place where you feel happy and where you’re respected for who you are. That’s the sort of home we aim to create at Ocean View.

Ocean View Nursing Home
Ocean View is a spacious building with 28 bedrooms and a large day sitting room and conservatory, where you can meet your family and friends and socialise with other residents. If you prefer to have your own space, you can take one of our single bedrooms, and we also have twin bedrooms for those who have partners or like to share. All of our bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms for your privacy and comfort. We have wi-fi in the bedrooms and all over the house, for those who like to stay in touch with the world around them. We encourage you to bring your things with you from home, so you can easily settle into your new bedroom.
You’ll enjoy delicious meals in one of our two dining rooms, prepared by our award-winning catering team. If you would like a few moments of quiet reflection, you can spend some time in our prayer room. We encourage you to take a walk in our beautiful landscaped gardens, which are enclosed for your safety. While you walk, you can take in the spectacular sea and mountain views.
An Active Daily Lifestyle
Lifestyle & Activities
We have a wonderful variety of activities on offer at Ocean View, and you can find out what’s happening on our community noticeboard. Our activities coordinators have put together a mix of games, arts and crafts and exercise activities that will keep you busy and happy all day long.
If you like to be creative, you can get involved in singing or watercolour painting sessions, visit the theatre or listen to a poetry reading. And if you prefer to be active, there are fitness classes, nature walks and local outings to keep your body moving.
We deliver Engaging Dementia Sessions to residents living with Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Engaging Dementia is a technique that allows residents to communicate more effectively. It also draws on sights, sounds and touch to stimulate memory, establish routine and forge a meaningful connection with the world around you. This is a groundbreaking initiative and we’re delighted to be able to offer it to our residents with memory loss.
We like to be a little different in the activities we offer our residents. We recognise the great benefits that animals can bring into people’s lives, so we bring them into the nursing home for you to bond with. People find that the animals are a calming influence, and will give you lots of unconditional love. Staying on the theme of wellbeing, you can enjoy mindfulness and hand therapy, or get a glamorous haircut in our very own hairdressing salon. And if you just want to have fun, you can play parachute games or floor basketball – those sessions can become very lively.
